Abstract
Three species of Homidia, (H. rosannae n. sp., H. sotoi n. sp. and H. yoshiii n. sp.) found among misidentified specimens of the Yoshii’s Collection at “Muséum d'histoire naturelle de la Ville de Genève” (MHNG), are described. The similar colour pattern of many species of Entomobryini makes it difficult to identify some specimens, but the use of macrochaetotaxy (Jordana & Baquero, 2005) allows differentiate the species and, for this paper, the description of these three new ones. A comparative chaetotaxy of Homidia Japanese species and a key is given.
